    I'm 6'3", 235lb riding on an '05 Kona Hoss. Since I bought my bike in late June, I've dropped from 290 to 235. I ride almost every day, rain or shine.

    I'm not a clydesdale, I'm just fat!

    5' 7" 298 down from 325. I used to have a Giant mtb about 10years ago, it got stolen and about that time I found the internet and haven't done much else
    I ran into a friend of mine I haven't seen for a while that runs a bike shop in Fla. and talkin to him about the old bmx days got me jonsin' for a bike & to get in shape! quit smoking 1 month ago I've been walking 5 miles a day. One good thing about the internet it brought me here! I have been reading so much of your stories & its a great motivation.Ihaven't decided on a bike yet, but I'm leaning towards the Kona Hoss.

    I'm 6'4" and 225lbs. I decided a couple of months back to dust of the old K2 4000 and get to ridin' again. I've got some buddies who are either big and slow like me or new to riding, so I'm having fun again. I'm going to cut off Mexican food, beer, and bourbon and concentrate on getting back to 200.

    I'm 6' 2" and around 210, last time I checked. Didn't know I fit into this category.

    Started out with a Trek 3700 but found after two broken rear axles, stripped cranks, and wrapping the rear derailuer around the rear axel, I needed something beefier, so I went out and got me a Giant AC.

    Rode the Giant for two rides and wound up on DL after the second ride. Itchin to get back. I am keeping the Trek for riding with the family and contemplating buying a used hardtail, maybe a Kona Hoss if I can one.

    I'm 6' and 215lbs. I used to ride a ton back 6 years ago or so when i was about 175lbs.

    I just dug the bike back out a week ago, and am already full swing back into cross country riding, loving every second. I'm determined to get back down to the 185 range.

    The bike is a '95 Fuji Discovery with a *gasp* '95 model Judy XC fork and cantilever brakes (canti-who??) and mostly Deore XT components from back when XT meant 8spd. Its a great bike, but its in dire need of a fork upgrade! The elastomers dry rotted in their 6 year hibernation and now every bump i hit bottoms it out.

    fatties on bikes...some people just don't get it

    6' 0" and 245
    I ride a stumpjumper fsr comp in the woods, an old raleigh on the street, and a kona stab
    on the downhills.

    I ride with a bunch of guys who all weigh 150 wet with all of their gear on. Everytime we would go to a cross counrty race, I would ask if they had a clydsdale race and one thime the girl said that there was no prize's in that group. I said do I look like I would win a prize?
    I was just looking for a better placement.

    One of my buddies finally figured out what I was going through on the hard climbs when he asked me what I weighed. It was the equivelant of him climbing the hill with his 59 lb downhill bike on his back. Now I just here how good I ride for a fat guy.

    I don't mind, because riding with guys who are better than you and supportive of you only makes you better.

    Ride on tubbies, because I'm not stopping.

    Since this thread reply, I've lost 9 lbs. by limiting my calories, cutting out alchohol except for weekends, and riding a lot. I'm riding about 30 miles per week on some pretty technical local trails that really give me a good workout. I can tell a huge difference in my stamina since I started all this 7 weeks ago. Hoping to drop another few pounds and get down to my goal of 200 (so I can still claim clydesdale status ).

    I donnow, I'm pretty big.

    I am 6' 3" and hover around the north end of 270 most of the time. I have been riding for 14+ years at this size now. I ride about three days a week at an average of 8.5 mph through our 4 and 5 star trails in my state (SC.) I ride a 2001 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR, S works model. I have done quite a few upgrades to the bike along the way. I have upgraded the wheels, head set, stem, carbon bars, seat (it is a personal thing), and other smaller items.
    One question for you bigger guys. I am having a problem my Fox Float RC. About two miles in to my average ride (small to medium drops & high frequancy bumps) I lose most of my air pressure. I have serviced the seals and submerged the shock at full pressure (265 lbs) and it is not leaking (no bubbles.) What to do? Is the shock just too light-weight?

    MD newbie

    6'2 265. Ride a 2006 Hoo Koo E Koo that I just bought on friday. Its my first bike and loving it. Plowing thru the snow and ice the last few days is been too too fun. The bug bit me and I will stay sick.

    6 foot, 40yrs, & 250+lbs, was about stone heavier 3 months ago. Fighting fit I would be 200lbs (10 years ago), several years of work, family, curry, beer & red wine to "blame". Hoping to lose 30lbs over next few months. Just spotted this forum, good idea. Bikes are fairly stock 03 rockhopper disc which I am fitting Reba SL air forks to. Road bike is standard Le Mond steel framed "le croix fere" which I just bought, lovely ride. Just moved to PA USA from bonnie scotland and enjoying the trails here.

    6 foot, 4 inches tall, weighing around 238 on the scale in the morning, before the morning rituals. Just turned 43. Curent ride is an '06 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert pretty customized with some Thomson stuff, lotsa XTR and an FSA carbon fiber DH bar that rocks! Just sold my Yeti 575 and Turner Burner.

    By the end of '06 I plan on dabbling in the 29er arena with either a Leviathon or an El Capitan.

    Better late than never...

    I thought I had posted my particulars in this thread already, but a slow day at the office gave me way too much time to go through all of the pages of this thread to find that I had not as of yet posted; so here goes.

    6’4” 240pnds. My goal for 06 is to go down to my best fighting weight of 220pnds. My 5 steeds are Raleigh Inferno (XC); Diamondback XTS Moto (Freeride/DH); Raleigh Professional (Road); Raleigh Rush Hour (Track/SS); Banshee Morphine (Urban).

    Many years ago when i was in Tiptop Racing shape

    About 235pounds 7%body fat at 185cms tall(6.2")

    todal that i am a LazzyPIg i'm about 210 and still 6.2'

    Lets start with the "All you can Eat" utencils.

    Nicolai M-pire features 9' of rear travel, show with skinny tyres the day i build her up and i was testing her around.


    still skinny tyres,, i can run 26'x3' front and rear if needs be


    just in case I'm still Hungy, Giant TeamDH


    now for the more sensitive meals,,, Balfa "Two-step" In BIg...


    and Balfa "two-step" in Tinny..


    I got the White Balfa first and sadlly i discover was a little to small for me,(to muxch expose seat post) even if handle like a dream, so i got the Blue one that fit me a lot better, the surprise is that the blue one does not handle half as well, so i keep the two.

    My "Aircraft carrior" and one of the reason I'm a lazzypig with the little balfa on top


    now with the Large balfa on it...


    For Desert and snacks, I have a few hardtails.

    Bontrager Racelite OR,, fun fUn FuN


    i also have a Little Chamelon that i really enjoy, sometimes as a single speed, sometimes just 8 gears in the back, sometimes fully gear.


    a Old "fake" gary fisher that actually rides really nice.


    But I think my Favorite "Spoon" are this Little Klein's (i have 3) specially this old Attitude that i made into a Single speed.


    she is just So pretty, but also hard and very demanding


    To Complete the Dinning Experience I have a Very Dirt capable "Limousing" so i can take my dates for a feast.




    I build and costumize a bunch of diferent Forks and wheels, from full Destruction 20MM Axle downhil capable 3' wide monster to more street oriented and also much lower stand over height.




    I think that is it for pictures, I do have a few other projects and "Cheap date" bikes, that i don't care locking on the street when i go to the movies or something, but nothing really special or fun,, just McDonald quality crap...

    again I don't think being a little extra heavy is a Evil thing in fact i like it far more, since i'm a lot less worry than i use to be when i was counting 6000/7000 calories a day and training like a mad man.

    also a great side effect of being strong and big is that you can man-handle very big toys and EaT a Lot of Mud if you have too


    the way I see it, my 45 pound Nicolai is a piece of cake if you compare it with a 550 pound Golem "Super size me mega meal"

    Good for a second I got worry I bumb you guys up...

    I just love bikes among a very few other things, most of them don't require much money(love, Friends, sunsets, drawings, sunsets,FooD Lots of Cheap good Food,,aka simple things), plus I have a ton of contacts and friends in the Industry so i get "Bro-Deals" almost for everything


    anyway don't get

    but I just got another bike, what I want to show you...

    this Company when out of business two years ago, so you can only find used frames,, i look for this one for about 19-20 months, until ifind on last week.

    she is so prety and also super nice for "BigBoned" dudes. super strongand reliable..


    7'' in the back and about the same in the front


    Balfa start making VPP bikes in about 1999, so they have years of experience and reputation in front of them, plus a bunch of crazy Canadians trying to break them down with out much luck


    if i was just to keep a single long travel suspension bike,,, this is the ONe


    i'm sorry again if was my fault that nobody post on this tread for about a week, i was just exited to show you my little "Harem" of two wheeled girlfriends.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Hey everyone. By my size I guess I'm a clyde no matter if I want to think of myself as one or not! 6'1 220lbs with broad shoulders etc.. I'm big but I don't consider myself very overweight. My goal is to drop 20lbs and tone up a bunch. I've been riding over a year now and I love it.

    My ride is a 2001 KHS FXT Comp.

    -Marzzochi Bomber z.5
    -Truvativ Firex crankset
    -LX drivertrain

    I've upgraded some stuff..
    -Winzip Mechanical Disk brakes
    -2004 CrankBrothers EggBeater SL pedals.
    -Truvativ 32t Bash guard.

    I'm planning on getting some Panaracer Fire XC tires with some ultralight tubes, along with a new Sram chain pretty soon. For my first true quality mountain bike I love it. In the future I would LOVE to own a Santa Cruz Blur ..

    anyhow, I love to ride.. nuff said.
    ~ it's all good ~

    5'10 210# in AZ

    Ever since I took an EMS job several years ago, I blew up to about 220#. I rode a Bullit for a few years,but not very often. Then built a ghetto SS bike last winter, and rode every non working day. I am now down to 210 ish, and am riding a Fetish Fixation SS that I built in August. Got rid of the Bullit and got a Heckler too. I Iike pizza and Guinness too much to ever be under 200#. But the SS has made me pretty fast.

    6'-4" 230lbs

    Raleigh M80 XL Ridden about a year now. Rode Univega for seven years before that.
    Full LX grouping
    Disk f/r
    Club roost dh bars
    Primo Meat Tenderizers

    Really like the bike. More of a xc set up. Need a new, shorter stem. Bike wants to tank into corners. Takes a lot of attention to keep her smooth through tight corners that track back uphill. Definately need a new shock. The Judy is already bottoming out and will probably be toast soon. Mainly I just need to ride more. I'm caught between wanting to just hit jumps and small technical loops and doing easy trails because my conditioning is not up to par.

    I like the xl frame because it gives me the room to move around on. It's great for longer rides. But it also kind of bites when I want to hit jumps and launch off stuff because I can't toss it around as easily as my old smaller bike and my 24"er.

    Nice to see this section of the forum.

    I'm glad I found this forum, its great for bigger guys like us.

    I'm 6'4" and about 280, slowly on my way down from 315 a couple of years ago.

    I haven't ridden a bike since I was a kid so I'm looking foward to getting back into it with my new '05 23" Specialized Rockhopper, stock except for an upgraded front fork.

    Hi guys,

    I just joined up today. Yipee.

    187cm and 110kg or 6'2" and 242lbs for the metrically challenged.

    I only realised there was a clydesdale forum after I'd signed up. This should be an excellent source of information for the larger rider.

    Current bikes......

    Giant NRS - for off road work
    Old Norco Magnum - built up as a commuter bike to get me from home to work and back.

    I'm sitting at 6'0" and about 240# now (down from just shy of 260# last year) with the help of getting back into cycling in a big way last year (over 1000km in the first 8 mo). I'm hoping to get back to my fighting weight from when I was in the reserves (180#) but even 200# would be respectable, considering I am built like a brick wall.

    I'd post a pic of my ride, but I'm just in the process of changing it up. I'll be on a Gary Fisher Cake 2 DLX within the next few weeks. I'll post once it's up and running.

    6'2", 237 was 249 last week. Doctor wants me down to 195, but I think 205 - 215 is more realistic. Just getting back into mountain biking, part of the reason the weights coming off!

    Rides:
    Trek FuelEx 8, about a week old. Stock except for Time Atac XS pedals, Ergon Race Magnesium Grips on the way. I'm really enjoying this bike so far. Last ime I road a FS, about 6 years ago, I was not impressed. They have come along way.



    Vodoo Bokor, mostly XT,



    The Vodoo is on injured reserve, due to a sudden and violent deceleration, when the bike, on my room rack at the time, didn't quite make it under the garage door.



    Serotta CSI, lugged steel frame, DuraAce. Ben is a GOD with steel.



    Orbea Lobular, compact aluminium frame, Ultegra. Great bike, but I might sell it soon as it doesn't get much use.



    The whole family

    Newbie here, 6'3 1/2" and 225. I was SHOCKED to know that there was actually a thread for large men entitled Clydesdales. Still digesting it. (pun intended) This looks like a fun group.
    I'm enjoying just reading thru your posts. Havent' experienced the buzz of riding since I was a kid and now me and my kids ride. Wife will eventually. As as I read more, I get the Jones to get out and get a real bike. IT's gotten to where I ride a lil most every day now. I look forward to it on my way home from work.

    5'10" and 235 right now. About 25 more than I should/usually be... like one guy said: "I'm big boned, I swear". Got down to 197 after a summer of landscaping 14 hrs a day during university, but as a medical equipment sales rep I generally sit on my ass driving all day. Sucks. I would actually love a bike commuting job! Anyway, baby on the way this summer, so that will add some complication to the excercise time table, but I'm determined to keep it up! Look left and you'll see a very small picture of my current off roader... '03 Klein Palomino Race Disk. I have a '00 Stumpjumper Comp HT that I use for early season road training/back up/farting around bike.

    The new ride: 33 lbs as shown, just under 31 lbs without the night riding light and battery. It does wonderfully with my 6' 240 lb body on it





    hehehe...I'm gonna enjoy putting some good km's on this bike this summer!

    A man looks into the abyss. Theres nothing staring back at him. At that moment, a man finds his character. And thats what keeps him out of the abyss.

    anyway don't get

    but I just got another bike, what I want to show you...

    this Company when out of business two years ago, so you can only find used frames,, i look for this one for about 19-20 months, until ifind on last week.

    she is so prety and also super nice for "BigBoned" dudes. super strongand reliable..


    7'' in the back and about the same in the front


    Balfa start making VPP bikes in about 1999, so they have years of experience and reputation in front of them, plus a bunch of crazy Canadians trying to break them down with out much luck


    if i was just to keep a single long travel suspension bike,,, this is the ONe


    i'm sorry again if was my fault that nobody post on this tread for about a week, i was just exited to show you my little "Harem" of two wheeled girlfriends.
